Disappearing F Drive Contents After Scan
Posted 19 September 2004 - 02:19 PM
Recently, my friend noticed that some games were not appearing in the games menu, so he scanned his drive using XBMC. Apparently he had to do this on a few occasions. The last time he did the scan, it was taking a long time so he turned off the xbox in mid-scan. Later, when he restarted the machine, he received an error that XBMCís hometag was missing and that the XBMC FTP engine was running. At this point the chip could be shut off and the console could be used as a regular xbox as I had locked the hard disk earlier.
I successfully FTPed into his xbox and noticed that the f drive (where I had XBMC) was missing and that a Q drive had been created. Next, I booted the xbox from a cd copy of evolution x to see if I could see the f drive using FTP. It worked, but I could not find any files on the F drive. In addition, I could not add any new folders to the drive. I can add folders to other drives without problems. Does anyone have any ideas?
My next solution was to try and format the c drive and use the backup I had created to re-populate that drive. I tried to format the drive using Flash FXP as instructed in the tutorials section. I can issue the raw commands, but do not a hard drive number returned so I can complete the format. Is this as a result of having the hard drive locked? If so, how can I unlock the drive now that the app on my f drive to do this is gone?
Please help if you can. This is a weird problem. Do any of you think it would be a physical problem with the hard disk?

Also, you should not use Scan in My Programs.
Please read the My Programs section in the manual:
Also, you never mentionned which XBMC version you are using. I suggest grabbing the latest if possible and doing a complete reinstall.

I cannot reinstall XBMC as I cannot access the F drive.

I'm going to try to use an xbox utility to format it with my pc because using slayer's autoinstaller formatter doesn't fix the problem.
